FO :: The Brick Red Crescent Shawl

I didn’t tell you? Sorry I was so concentrated on my sewing projects that I completely forgot to mention that I was knitting another Crescent Shawl in the meantime… This is for a gift exchange with Uncinetto e Mille Fili Colorati 🙂 ❤

I hope that you’ll like it even if you see the same pattern for the third time already … 😛

Embroidery

Hello,my friends!

I still can’t believe that I made this last night…

WP_20150730_22_24_03_Pro

A felt heart embellished with embroidery…. Me!!! Embroidery and me!!! How,for God’s sake, did that happen?!

WP_20150730_22_27_48_Pro

WP_20150730_22_30_29_Pro

My first embroidered heart key ring…. I’m still speechless!!

I was able to do that thanks to two tutorials found on You tube….

Do not ask me why because I don’t know…. The only explanation I have is that, unconsciously, I knew that I was able to embroider, I just had to wait for right the time. And the greatest inspiration came from two blogs, Squirrel Picnic and Beastie Blog, run by two great girls!!! Thank you,dear ladies, for sharing your work! You rock!!

Now I can’t wait to embroider more!

Oh,I almost forgot,except the stuffing, my key ring has some dries lavander flowers to give it a unique scent… This is a gift and I do hope that the recipient will love it since it was she and her work who made me wish to try something new….

Love

The mustard yarn epilogue

Oh,yeah,it is true! I had bought a big amount of the mustard cotton yarn and I tried to make the most of it indeed! First the dress, then the Crescent shawl and, as last, this little goodie… a grocery bag…

…. well,in fact it is too small to carry groceries but it is perfect for books…. LOL The cost of the yarn? 26 € for thirteen balls thanks to my friend Katia. I’m quite satisfied with my maths LOL and even if I had paid it twice as much it still would have been a bargain.

Back to the bag, I had found the pattern online quite a while ago but I don’t remember where. Here’s the photo I saved on my computer and if the author recognizes it as his own pattern I kindly ask to let me know.

As you can see, the size can be adjust as you want and it is quite quick to crochet so… Have fun!!

I can easily suppose that you could be slightly sick of seeing all that mustard at mine…. 😛

WP_20150704_14_33_10_Pro

…. but,oh,there’s a ball left!!!!! Can you spot it?

Seriously now, I think that I’ll take a break of that mustard but in a few days even this last ball will be happily used for a very good purpose so I hope that you’ll forgive me its longlasting presence at mine… Do you remember the Charity Yarn Bombing promoted by The Grange Range last year?? This event will occure again in August this year so I will use it to crochet flowers! And if you are interested to, just have a look at The Grange Range blog for more informations:

Have a great weekend, kind and lovely people out there!!

Sorrow

http://www.acreativebeing.com/2015/06/29/goodbye-not-farewell/

I was working on a beautiful project (not mine, but more about in a due time) when I saw this on Facebook… I have never read Wink’s blog but this sad news stroke me quite a lot. Maybe because I’m totally unable to sympathise a condition this girl went through during all her life. From my point of view beauty we make should help us to live better not to die. Or sometimes the efforts are simply not enough… I don’t know…. Even if I sound contradictory (but those of you who learnt to know me will understand) I say: rest in peace,Wink, and have fun!

Back online again

Hello,my friends!

Here I am again!! The internet connection is now fully functional and I am able to show you where we have moved and what I have been crafting lately… 🙂

Let start with Peschiera del Garda. Those of you who were following me on Instagram had aready seen these photos but now I can arrange them with a new order and sense…

Have a look to the downtown….

…. and to the surroundings…. my favourites!!! Because I can have as many bike rides as I like!!!

We moved in a nice part of Italy and I foresee a lot of solitary rides,a condition which I like a lot. Do not misunderstand me,I’m a very sociable woman,but I love that condition which brings me to stay a lot with myself musing about my spiritual and earthly life. Oh,I’m always and so often looking for answers…

Between one question and another rising in my mind,we had settled down 😀 and I have started to decorate our home… here it is, my crafting corner… 🙂

InstagramCapture_097608fb-5c4d-4f32-93b4-18a00e5559cd_jpg

…. and the very first of the four curtains sewed and hanged.. 🙂

I crocheted this sweet creature for my kitchen to keep me good company while cooking or when my Big man is away… did I do the right thing… 🙂 🙂 🙂 ???

There are a lot of things still to do in this new home but up till now I’m satisfied with what has been done and how we had managed all the move thing! And now we are back to our normal life. Well,I miss my Parma friends but I will go back to Parma from time to time,we are not so far away 🙂

I’m so happy to be online again so I can catch up with the latest news in the blogsphere! I missed you so much,I missed the way I feel when I read all your fabulous posts!! My door to the marvel of creation is open again and can’t wait to discover all the beauty you were up to lately!

The unbearable need to crochet

It happened! It stroke me like a thunder! I simply had to crochet it!

A few days ago I was looking for inspiration on Pinterest,just because, and have found this…. originally published here… and there was anything but anything indeed that I could have done to push away that painful need to craft this amazing doily…. despite all the work and the tasks to be acomplished in these days…. for my sake, the doily was quite quick to crochet and I FO it and iron it a half an hour ago… Even if it has a quite mushy look it is still the most trendy doily I have crocheted up till now and I like quite a lot how it turned out… I foresee more doilies crocheted following the same patterns but trying different colours…. It will be fun indeed 🙂 🙂 🙂

Enjoy…
